Subject: [PATCH] HID: elan: Do not explicitly free managed resource

'input' is allocated with 'devm_input_allocate_device()'. There is no need
to free it explicitly. (add should it be 'devm_input_device_release()'
should be used for that)

Fixes: 9a6a4193d65b ("HID: Add driver for USB ELAN Touchpad")
